RT @ldobsonhughes: Come election time, no amount of boutique tax credits or road widenings will matter to a family that lost 40% of their income, and are distressed that their child can't write properly yet

RT @ldobsonhughes: I genuinely think the provincial govt doesn't understand the fury brewing, and the risk they're facing. School closures will have profound impacts on household incomes and children's wellbeing. These are vote-determining issues, from core demographics with voices

RT @ldobsonhughes: The more media I do on school re-openings, the more frustrated and incredulous I get at the lack of political prioritization of education. It's like watching a slow motion disaster unfolding. We can all see it. And maybe I'm naive, but I didn't think it'd come to this

RT @ldobsonhughes: An expert panel would within a month, produce a framework for school boards to safely maximize school re-openings, based on the Harvard study, Sick Kids, Mass state plan, and evidence from France, Germany, Taiwan, Singapore, China.

RT @ldobsonhughes: The challenge with safely re-opening schools is essentially reducing class sizes. This requires increasing physical space, and increasing the number of educators. This is a jurisdiction-wide problem that could be coordinated centrally
